Schoolkids use Class Pass for fundraising challenge

A group of fundraising schoolchildren are the first in the city to use Xplore Dundee’s brand new Class Pass. 

The bus operator donated the ticket to the Rotakids group from St Peter and St Paul’s Primary School to help with transport for their sponsored bridge walk on Friday 19th May. 

The 14 children and 6 adults used the 22 to travel to and from the Tay Road Bridge. They walked all the way over and back again, stopping for lunch on the Fife side. The effort was organised to raise money for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) and they’ve collected around £400 worth of donations for the charity.

Managing Director of Xplore Dundee Elsie Turbyne said:

“The Class Pass is ideal for school trips and excursions for youth groups or out of school clubs. It could also be used for parties, holiday activities or, as we’ve seen, charity fundraising. 

“Our network of buses can provide access to all the major leisure destinations in Dundee, such as the swimming pools, museums, parks and Science Centre. The Class Pass is a great value way to transport a large group across the city and I’m glad the Rotakids Club from St Peter and St Pauls have been able to make good use of the very first ticket!”

The Class Pass is now available to purchase from Xplore Dundee’s Travel Centre and is a three-part ticket, which can be used on three separate occasions for 10 children and 2 adults, or all at once for a larger group of up to 30 children and 6 adults. It offers unlimited travel all day on any route and is aimed at any group of young people and adults wishing to travel on public transport across Dundee.
